Due to compromised backcountry conditions, Red Bull Cold Rush will be cancelled in 2015. With safety as the major priority, the decision was made by event organizers to call off the freeski event.
“This event requires deep powder snow to be a success. Safety for athletes and delivering a premium, progressive ski contest are our ultimate goals for Red Bull Cold Rush. Unfortunately, conditions will not allow for either,” said Scott Jewett, National Event Manager.
As a world class ski event that showcases athletes in some of the most challenging natural backcountry terrain, the contest is ultimately at the mercy of nature. While Revelstoke Mountain Resort has terrific terrain and snow on resort, conditions in the remote backcountry regions unfortunately do not support the needs of the contest.
Red Bull Cold Rush is an important pillar of the Red Bull snow program that aims to offer the best and most progressive freeski action, and will return in the future when conditions permit.
